I am a senior software engineer and architect with the Intel Data Center Group in Hillsboro, USA, where I am responsible for the technical coordination of the software development team for Intel’s Xeon+FPGA product line - together, we design the software interfaces for taking advantage of integrated FPGA accelerators.
I enjoy defining future architectures and interfaces to large-scale systems as much as managing high-performance research and software development teams with a focus on novel and emerging technologies. In the past, I have acquired, managed and contributed to cross-industry and academic research projects, coached and motivated research and development teams towards a common vision, and developed software stacks and applications in the areas of datacenter-scale reconfigurable systems, automotive high-performance computing, and virtualization (both in embedded and server scenarios).
My interests span high-performance reconfigurable systems design, open-source software, safety-critical applications, hardware/software co-design, reconfigurable computing, and communication systems.
Previously, I have held research positions at Intel Labs Europe, EADS Innovation Works (now part of Airbus Group) and the University of Paderborn.
I also initiated the work on the ReconOS
operating system for reconfigurable devices, now an open source project maintained by the University of Paderborn, and help steer Intel’s Hardware Accelerator Research Program.
